How far will our LEAFS go ?
Unfortunately, I think we are going to lose in the 1st round again. I just don't see a way to beat the Bruins in the first round for us. At the same time, I wouldn't be surprised if we made it all the way the ECF.
I think we can beat the same way we have all season, that's the plan I would use. I'm saying 2nd round plus. No one scares me this year.
We could very well be playing Tampa in the first round. Vasi hasn't been the same guy lately.
We would have to win 2 games in Boston pretty much for sure. That's tough sledding right there. It will be very impressive if we beat them in the first round. If we beat them, then sky is the limit as to how far we can go.
We'll best the bruins(fairly easily)
We're in their heads, play them very well, and will be incredibly determined with scary memories in their heads. Kadri, Rielly, Gards and JVR especially should be extremely motivated.
I'm honestly quite a realist, and not worried much about Boston.
Anything can happen in the playoffs. Personally I will just be happy with one more seven game series and we play as well as we did last year. If we win a round it would be huge.
I’ll say it here !
I’ll say it First !
Our LEAFS ,with 100 years of LEAF NATION
Lord Stanley is coming home !!!
“ Just win Baby “
ruKus calls it like I sees it!!!
I look at Boston and I’m intimidated, I don’t know why, maybe it’s because they beat us so badly for so long? Their building is scary, having said that, we can beat them, I almost think it’s a coin flip.
wow wish I could be as optimistic as you lol, I see a Boston team that is very dangerous, I mean honestly we have a good team, but I believe the B's are better just my opinion of course, but thats what I love about sports anything can happen on any given night!
I'm expecting a first round like last year...each game close, a couple OTs...so it could go either way.
When Matthews scored in game 4 last year to make it 4-3, I was convinced we were tying it. Then Carrick made that bonehead play a minute later and it was 5-3.
The margin of error is so thin in the NHL playoffs, you can never be sure.
We've beaten Boston 3 times this year without Matthews. Honestly not very worried about them. Might be naive on my part but I see them running out of gas trying to keep up with a younger and faster team.
I'd love to ruin Boston's party and render their current success meaningless.
We are crashing their party and demolishing all their Tea Pots !!

Gooo F€£¥in LEAFS Goooooo!
I'm sure their fans would take it very well
I think no matter who play, Tampa or Boston we can win. I would prefer to play Boston. Give us a chance to rid us of the bad juju from that 4-1 blown lead. That and we have owned them and match up so well against them
I think we lose in he first round but it won't be easy. Torontos a tough out in the playoffs. They're like Carolina in a way in terms of that. With that being said, I wouldn't be surprised if we made it past the first round. It would be amazing. My first playoff series win.
I think we can beat Boston but if we do we'll likely come out of it so beat up that we'll go out next round.
They have beat Boston 7 times in the past 8 games how do you not see a way to beat them?
I don't know about that, Bruins players are dropping like flies, it could be a relatively easy series
Boston might start running out of gas in a long playoff series.
It's going to be a battle that's for sure.
I think if there's a fanbase who should know the regular season means nothing in the playoffs it's Leafs Nation and our history in the early 2000's vs Ottawa.
conference finals quote me later baby...
JvR is never, ever motivated. Never.
Because playoffs is a different kind of sport.
